2014 Soccer Golf Challenge

The Cutters Soccer Club is excited to be holding our 3rd Annual Soccer Golf Challenge on Monday, June 16th at the Bloomington Country Club. This event helps our club raise money for scholarships, the Outreach Program, and coaching education. We are giving out nearly $35,000 in scholarships this year, and more than 15% of the children in our club are receiving some financial aid. Additionally, the Outreach Program has greatly expanded over the past year. We are providing free programming to hundreds of children in the area, but we need funding to allow for continued growth.

Each participant will go through a grueling 9-5 day filled with soccer golf in the morning and a more traditional golf scramble in the afternoon. It is always a fun, but exhausting day. There will be coaches, board members, parents, and community members taking part in this year’s event. Please consider joining us or supporting one of the participants with a tax-deductible contribution. Thanks!

03 Girls Red Win Jr. Irish Memorial Day Invitational

Congratulations to the 03 Girls Red team for winning the Jr. Irish Memorial Day Invitational. The girls went 2-1 in their bracket before winning a rematch with Athletic Jaier in the championship game. They came from 1-0 down and sent the game to overtime before claiming a pk shootout victory that went all the way to the 6th shooter.

96 Boys Win Starburst Spectacular

The 96 Boys won all three of their bracket games 2-1, 2-0, and 3-0. The competition was very strong, but the boys played some of their best soccer at the end of the season controlling the games. The championship game was a hard fought game with both teams being tired from the heat and previous games. They battled through exhaustion and played possession for the entire 80 minutes while scoring three goals and keeping a shutout. The team defended well as a whole all weekend and only allowed one goal during the entire tournament.

96/97 Girls Red Finishes 2nd at Starburst Spectacular

Congratulations to the 96/97 Girls Red team for finishing in 2nd place at the Starburst Spectacular in Columbus, OH this past weekend. They fought hard in their first three games of the tournament, winning all of their bracket games by one goal. While they lost in the championship, they never gave up, scoring on a header as time expired.

 

00 Boys Red Win Javanon Classic

Congratulations to the 00 Boys Red team for winning the Javanon Classic the weekend of April 12-13 in Elizabethtown, KY. The team finished with a record of 3 wins and 1 tie, while only allowing one goal all weekend.

On top, down under

Former Cutters ’98 player Beverly Thomas and her father Jeff, who was most recently coach of the ’02 girls team at Cutters, have landed on their feet in Melbourne, Australia.  Jeff is coach of the South Melbourne Women’s Football Club U16 team, and coordinator of Junior Football for the club.  He’s coaching his daughter for the first time since, he thinks, she was under 7 and playing Cutters Community Soccer. 
 
SMWFC won their pre-season tournament this weekend, winning the final 6-3 and with Beverly scoring a goal in each of the last three games of the tournament.  Jeff describes his team as “probably able to give either of the local Bloomington high school teams a run for their money.” He’s borrowed from Cutters RMA training methods which are new to Australia and also organized set plays for his team, which he said not many local youth teams bother to do and “we are causing chaos on almost every attacking corner as a result.”
 
Beverly and her siblings Gavin and Melissa all attend the same (six-year) high school in Elwood, Victoria.  They proudly wear their Indiana, Cutters and Bloomington soccer shirts around town, although both SMWFC and the local Brighton Soccer Club Gavin and Melissa play in blue rather than the familiar red they have only ever known before.
 

Inaugural Cutters Charity Casino Night - March 29th

Purchase Tickets Here

The Cutters Soccer Club will be hosting the Inaugural Cutters Charity Casino Night on Saturday, March 29th from 6:00-10pm at the Liberty Ball Room & Banquet Center, located at 2100 Liberty Drive.

Tickets can be purchased prior to March 5th for $45 each. Starting March 6th this will increase to $50. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $55. Proceeds of this event will go to the Cutters Outreach Program. The Outreach Program is a free soccer program that currently serves over 300 children ages 6-18. Outreach serves children enrolled in summer and after school programs through all three locations of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Monroe County, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Monroe County Community School Corporation School Age Care Program, and programs offered through area churches and smaller groups. Outreach also serves children who participate in the Cutters TOPSoccer Program. TOPSoccer provides young athletes with special needs the opportunity learn and play the game, but more importantly enables them to become valued and successful members of the soccer community. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $4,500.00 through this event.

The event will include gaming such as black jack, craps, and roulette. Everyone who purchases a ticket to the event will be given  ”funny money” in the form of casino chips. Additional chips can be purchased if you run out. At the end of the night you will be able to exchange your chips for raffle tickets. We will have many prizes available that you will have an opportunity to win through the raffle. There will be food provided for all attendees, as well as water and soda. There will be a cash bar for beer and wine.

This event is open to the general public, so we hope you will consider inviting friends, neighbors and family members who may not be directly involved with Cutters. In order to make this event a success, there is a significant need for volunteer support. To see all the volunteer opportunities and to signup, please click on the link below:

Shop With Scrip Fundraising Program

Fundraise While Shopping for Everyday Family Purchases

Scrip Fundraising through Great Lakes Scrip Program

The Cutters Soccer Club has become a member of the Great Lakes Scrip Program.  By using the Great Lakes Scrip Program Cutters’ families can earn money toward Cutters fees and team expenses by making their regular household or gift purchases.  But instead of paying with cash or credit, they use gift cards or certificates from America’s favorite and most trusted retailers.

The Purchase Discount is deposited into the Families’ Cutters Account.  The Great Lakes Scrip Program provides scrip programs for schools, churches and non-profit organizations by offering discounted gift cards and certificates for members’ everyday purchases.  Cutters members purchase the retailer gift cards at face value through the Great Lakes Scrip website or through the Cutters Scrip Coordinator, Pam Wilson.  The amount of the purchase discount is then deposited in the Cutters Scrip account.  The Cutters Scrip Coordinator will then deposit the member’s share into their personal Cutters account.  Each members Cutters account can then be used for payment of Club or team expenses.  Every purchase is discounted.  The value of discount will vary depending upon the retailer and the particular discounts that they may be offering at a given time.  Typically, the range is from a low of 2% to as much as 15%.  The retailer’s discounts are always displayed at the Great Lakes Scrip website, www.shopwithscrip.com.

The Scrip Program has Agreements with over 500 of the Country’s Biggest Brands. The attractive feature of the Great Lakes Scrip Program is that it has agreements with over 500 of the country’s biggest brands and retailers, many of which are in the Bloomington area.  Please see the Scrip Brand List at the following link: http://cutters.suso.org/wp-content/uploads/Retailer-List.pdf.  You’ll find cards you can use at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, movie theaters, home improvement stores, and almost any business that accepts gift cards. Virtually anywhere you shop will accept some form of Scrip.  The Club has established individual agreements with Bloomingfoods and Marsh grocery stores.  Marsh and Bloomingfoods will be administered by Pam Wilson.  The Club currently has an agreement with Kroger through the Kroger Cares Program, administered by Anne Veldman.

The Operational Aspects of the Scrip Program are defined.  The Club will institute a trial program during the upcoming holiday season.  Families may open scrip accounts beginning 29 November 2013.  Please see the flowcharts listed below that describe the operational aspects of the Great Lakes Scrip Program for Cutters’ shoppers.

What are Club and Family Earnings?  We are proposing that initially the earnings from the Great Lakes Scrip Program be split 30% to the Club and 70% to the member family from the Travel or Community Soccer program making the purchase.  As more members use the program to make purchases, the percentages will be adjusted in favor of the families.  We will evaluate the program at the conclusion of the test run (probably January 2014) to determine its future utility.  No changes will be made to the Kroger Cares Program.  This program has significant potential so we hope Cutters families will try it and give it serious consideration!

Bloomington, Indiana—Cutters Soccer Club is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement to partner with Meulensteen Academy.

SportpartnersNL (Netherlands) and Meulensteen Academy (MA) have earned a European-wide, sterling reputation for offering reliable and high quality soccer training services throughout their 14 years of conducting business. Cutters SC is now proud to offer the same expertise to the US market via this partnership with SportpartnersUSA and Meulensteen Academy. The Meulensteen Academy organization presents professional expertise of people working in soccer coaching as well as soccer education.

This partnership allows the Cutters Soccer Club to offer training in the Meulensteen Academy methods, philosophy, and instruction programs. Specifically, Cutters SC will offer the “Moves and Skills” Player Development Curriculum developed by Coach Rene Meulensteen, current Head Coach at Anzhi Makhachkala SC, Russia and long time First Team Coach of Manchester United (2008-2013).

Rene Meulensteen, commonly regarded as one of the best soccer trainers in the world, developed the “Moves & Skills” method to improve the skills of the modern soccer player at any level. The program’s goal is the development of creative, unpredictable, confident, and motivated players. At the center of the “Moves & Skills” method is the ability of a player to master the challenge of various 1v1 situations. Continue reading about Cutters partners with RMA
